This chapter focuses on three major wireless sensor node technologies (Sun SPOTS, Arduino and TinyOS) to help the reader choose what would best fit his/her applications. Our goal is to provide the basic useful information required to quickly start working (or just playing) with them in less than a few hours.


Sensor Node Near Field Communication Java Virtual Machine Wireless Sensor Node Client Node 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
